It may be within the dealer exchange period (usually 30 days). If so, that's the best bet.

But if you've had it too long to exchange it, you'll have to call Sharp for free service under warranty.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

Why did my whirlpool microwave display quit, everything else works. less than 2 years old


Over the range ovens of all brands are prone to failure of the electronics due to heat and steam from the food that's cooked on the range below them. It's not extremely common, but you do see more of these types of failures on these as opposed to counter top models.

Microwave plate turns but does not heat anything


The magnetron is bad. This is the radar wave producer that excites molecules and makes things cook. It is a replaceable part but you may find purchasing a new one is more desirable. Why? A magnetron for a popular model microwave that is 1-3 years old will cost about $50-60. If it's an old one it can cost $189 and hard to find one available. And if it was mass produced in China with a no-name brand you probably won't be able to find parts much less customer support. Also, if one component has gone bad it won't be long before another goes bad. Good luck.

Everything appears to be working with our microwave except it is not heating or cooking. All other functions appear to be o.k. I am not 100% sure of the model number and I'm not at my house to get that...


To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms ("runs but no heat"), as well as the answers to these questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.)

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

Microwave does not heat only7 months old


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

GE Customer Service is here.

If yours is not a GE, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

If it's less than a month old, your dealer may let you exchange it for a new one. That's the safest bet.

If not, then you will need to contact your manufacturer for free warranty repair. Their number will be in the owner's manual.
